Abstract

In this work we review the results obtained under the framework of FP7-HELIOS project for integrated DQPSK transceivers in silicon photonics. A differential DQPSK receiver with balanced zero biased Germanium photodiodes has been demonstrated at 10Gbit/s with an error floor around 10-15. Furthermore, DPSK modulation up to 10Gbit/s with a bit error rate below 10-9 is also demonstrated using a silicon push-pull operated dual-drive Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) based on carrier depletion. The results indicate the potential of the silicon CMOS photonics platform for boosting next-generation optical networks based on advanced modulation formats.
